    Ok i got my Network Internet Connection like this. My computer runs Windows XP and the other WIndows 98. I got internet directly. I have a second network card connected to a network car din the other computer. i used the network setup from the windows CD. Now here is the problem. EXAMPLE: Im on this computer and intenret is on. When i turn on the WIndows 98 computer i get a disconnect on my windows XP and then it connects right back. But this reconnect is very annoyin and stop many my downloads. Is there a way i can eliminate it?

    A router/switch would take care of that little problem in about a heartbeat.
